After a long day of traveling, my friends and I were searching for a restaurant with reasonable prices and good food. The Quays exceeded our expectations with a welcoming staff, nice atmosphere, and great food. I highly recommend it!

Nice food, but very expensive for what you get, however it is fresh local produce. Ok selection, would have preferred more choice in the line of sandwiches etc. Lovely location and beautiful outdoor seating.

Great service, nice cozy bar/restaurant. Came here on a chilly, overcast day and loved looking out at the ocean behind the bar. Definitely recommend the seafood chowder, and fish & chips of course!!
